Family is super important to me. Especially my mom's side. This photo lives on the shelf in my living room (and has for years). 3 generations: my great grandma (who died just before I was born), my mom, aunt, and grandmother. The print is dated March 1970, so I presume it was taken within the previous few months of that . That would make my mom in her mid 20s at the time. Nearly my age.
My mom is pretty awesome. Together with my dad, she raised 3 kids who all have quite different lives. She's been quite excited by the idea of being a grandmother for years. We were pretty sure I was her only hope on this front. Sometime in late Autumn/early Winter one more generation will be added to the lineup. (But it's not my turn just yet).
This means that the summer will involve some crafty auntie knitting time!
